Belvedere, CA

Belvedere is home to one of the more notable harbors in America. Sloops, ketches, catamarans, and classic rum-runner yachts moored like paintings in the Louvre, positioned against the most breathtaking view of the bay and San Francisco. With this in mind, the architecture of the residence takes on an appropriate seaside flavor.

Although the continuous thru tenons are aesthetic, they also serve the purpose of stabilizing the horizontal members from misbehaving over the years and decades.

CUSTOM WOOD GARDEN GATE #115-6    
 


Greenbrea, CA (Marin County)

Our #115-6 appears isolated, rising aboc=ve the stucco wall as if in anticipation of the aesthetic support of perhaps a series of short Pony_panels along the top of the wall.
The intent, howver, was to create a deer barrier, and nothing more.

Greenbrea, CA (Marin County)

Because the gate is supported by posts that are in turn supported by the short height of the stucco walls, we have suggested the Arbor #9 to offer additional stability.

Memphis, TN

With #115-1, the darker wenge tenons have been substituted with cedar. As a response to the patron's stated preference for finishing her gate on site with Sansin Onyx translucent stain.

The house photo provided by the homeowner. Although not what Ben and Charles had in mind when creating the original 115, it proves the versatility of the design to fit within the Federalist Revival portico of the south.

CUSTOM WOOD GARDEN GATE #115-A1    
 



Gate style #115-A1 is drawn from the basic premise of the #115, while stretching our modernist parameters just enough to lose the majority of you in lieu of the remaining few.

Our Wood Gate Design #115 was developed simultaneously with the Garden Gate Arbor #3

IN-PROGRESS

 
   
WOOD GARDEN GATE #115--PROGRESS
     
 


The process. Drawn toward a design that will compliment a style of postmodern architecture predicated by plate windows and horizontal planes. An architectural motif that is commonly without defining details. Clean, angular, unfettered. Offering a need for the intimacy of workmanship and design at the entry level with both girth and muscle but with the scrutiny of a somewhat complex system of joints.

Introducing a continuous pair of tenons in a contrasting, durable species. An approach that stabilizes the horizontal members over a given span, while offering a little head-scratching complexity.

T
he upper slats in the foreground are collected and the two long tenons are fed through. For the eventual assembly, the slats will be separated with spacers to insure the spacing between each slat is equal. The two through-tenons are not, contrary to popular thought, glued. They are loose tenons that allow the slats to breath freely over the seasons.

In the background Ben works on the pair of gate styles #87.

oised for the final assembly of Garden Gate #115. Oodles of joints. Making for a somewhat demanding process requiring the Zen-ness of a calm competent woodworker whose wits never fray.
